Vixen How do I teach someone to sing harmony? (59* d) RE: How do I teach someone to sing harmony? 03 Jul 08

Hi Sharon--

I'm harmonically-challenged, so Reynaud (who, I swear, dreams in harmony) gives me each note, and I sing it as if it were a melody, like your tenor. I still get pulled off my part, but I'm getting better at hanging on.

Patience, patience, patience is what I need, because the only way for me to successfully practice harmony parts is with a live person with a good ear who will stop me and get me back on track when I go off. I just can't concentrate on the words, the notes, *and* how it sounds with the other voice--too much. It's hard on my dearest, because I think dissonance is physically painful for him, but he does, bless him!

Good luck!
